Conti Ransomware Hits Costa Rica Electricity

Industry: Energy | Level: Strategic | Source: TheRecord

Junta Administrativa del Servicio Eléctrico de Cartago (JASEC), a government agency controlling electricity in Cartago, Costa Rica, has been impacted with Conti ransomware as administrative systems were impacted this past weekend. The attack occurred on Saturday, using systems managing the company's emails, website, and administrative collection systems being encrypted. The electric operator's general manager Luis Solano has assured customers "electricity and internet services operate normally,” however, the incident has inhibited customers from paying electric or internet bills. Until the incident is resolved the company has suspended bill payments.
